That's awesome growth in 6 months. Please share the source of these rainmaker large pots you are using for avocados. Thanks

You think that's awesome.  How about this in 7 months!

What is considered an abnormally large leaf for avocado? I have an unknown seedling that is 1 metre in height and one of the leaves is 33cm (13 inches) long. There was previously shade cloth on the sun-side to block harsh summer sun, maybe this caused it?

I wish I knew whether the ancestry was Mexican or Guatemalan the former having leaves that can be processed as a food additive or to brew tea. Guatemalan leaves are apparently toxic.
